A special cricket match will be held in Falmouth on August 20 in memory of a girl who died during the London tube bombings in July 2005.

The match will be held at Falmouth Cricket Ground in memory of Emily Rose Jenkins who was tragically killed at the age of 24.

Despite living in London, Emily's family have had a home in Cornwall for many years and are very keen to do somethingin memory of Emily, who was planning to train as a midwife in the county.

The match will be between Old England XI and the Cornwall Past and Future XI starting at 2pm with the Old England XI consisting of former professionals who have represented England including John Lever, Derek Randall, David Capel, Bill Athey, Clive Radley, Monty Lynch, Bob Parks, Neil Radford, Roger Tolchard, David Lawrence, Jon Hardy and Joey Benjamin.

The Cornish team will consist of retired and semi-retired players who have represented Cornwall or senior Cornish league sides mixed with one or two up and coming Cornish youngsters.

The match has been made possible by sponsorship from Westcountry Fruit Sales, Hine Downing Solicitors, Richard Thomas Partnership Chartered Surveyors and Wine in Cornwall and organised by Henry Shaw of Wine in Cornwall, John Lowry of Hine Downing and Sally Annan.

Emily's brother Barnaby said: "Emily spent a year of her short life living and working in Falmouth where she made close friends and was much loved by all who had the good fortune to know her.

"She was the life and soul of any good party, whether it was in the Ferry Boat Inn in Helford Passage or in Falmouth. She is sorely missed.

"Emily had a genuine love of children and this had led her to start a path to becoming a midwife. She would have made a caring, loving and patient midwife.

"It is for this reason that the money raised at the match will go towards sponsoring a student midwife through her studies and training."
